The Integral Warrior: Awakening the New Masculine
Have the courage to begin the profound journey that will be a powerful catalyst for stepping into a new way of BE-ing that will ignite every aspect of your life, your purpose - your relationships, your communication, your health and wellness, and even your spiritual evolution, allowing you not just to find, but to be the freedom we seek in our lives. 
You're going to awaken to the real possibility of becoming the man you've always known you could be, stepping into the truth of who you are in your fullness, cultivating potentials that exist in you, bringing your full presence and awareness to every moment for yourself, your loved ones, and the planet.  

Best of all, you'll do this in the safety of a conscious men's circle - engaging with men from all walks of life - consisting of teachings, cognitive and experiential processes, practices, support and safety, beginning with a 2-day introductory weekend  and an additional seven 3-day sessions over the course of several months, and an exclusive online forum only for course participants. For details on each of the weekends, scroll further down.

Discover new ways to live, work, play, and love in an emerging consciousness with ground-breaking men's work visionary and nationally-known facilitator and author, Gary Stamper.

  • Discover and activate the inner energies, vision, purpose and drive that moves you to embodying that inner freedom.

  • Discover how to improve your relationship with the feminine: your own and especially with your partner, learning how to stand in her fire, unscathed, strong and loving.

  • Awaken to the New Sacred Masculine within you who is capable of being fiercely and tenderly protective of the planet and life, defined by the Integral Warrior and the Sacred Activist within.

  • Using cutting-edge integral and developmental technologies, Jungian archetypes, ancient shamanic altered-states wisdom, and initiation and ritual, all in a no-bullshit way, Gary helps men step into a new way of BE-ing that allows them to live into their fullness.

from Awakening the New Masculine: "It is clearly time for men to wake up. Just a little over one decade into the twenty-first century, we find ourselves in the biggest struggle of our existence: a struggle in which the outcome is still unknown. It is time for men to stop acting like little boys."

So begins nationally known men's workshop facilitator Gary Stamper's book "Awakening the New Masculine: The Path of the Integral Warrior." Using find, but to be the full expression of the freedom we look for as men. With that freedom comes a deepening and a relaxation in relationships, work, life, play, love, and spirit

When you step into the truth of who you are, speaking from your heart, your partner - your friends, your children, your work relationships - will relax and trust you. You want to change the world....we start by changing ourselves.

It's time to transcend the archetypes of the bully and the over-feminized sensitive new age guy.

In this practice, we begin the process of re-owning our shadow. We'll FACE our shadow in 3rd-person; we'll TALK to our shadow in a 2nd-person dialogue; and we'll BE our shadow in 1st-person. Face it, Talk to it, Be it...It's that simple.

"It is time to evolve beyond the macho jerk ideal, all spine and no heart. It is time to evolve beyond the sensitive and caring wimp ideal, all heart and no spine. Heart and spine must be united in a single man, and then gone beyond in the fullest expression of love and consciousness possible, which requires a deep relaxation into the infinite openness of this present moment. And this takes a new kind of guts. This is the Way of the Superior Man." - from The Way of the Superior Man, by David Deida

What one woman said about her husband attending the first weekend:

"The synchronicities of this past weekend were just profound. First of all, he LOVED Gary's workshop.  I noticed a change in his demeanor and energy just from the first weekend.  And connecting with the men and himself in that way is what he has been really desiring and missing in his life.  It took all my strength NOT to jump up and down and squeal when he told me all about it, and about how he identified with the "King"...continuing to talk about how much he saw pieces of himself in a way that he could actually understand. My heart just fluttered as it felt so incredibly good to have this opportunity to hear him speak from his heart...and witness the changes!! Gary really set an example for him. He also found the Shadow work to be very revealing to him...he said he could see much of the shadow of the "King" to be much of what he experienced of his own be able to communicate in this way with him has been more than a miracle."
